Language teaching came into its own as a profession in the last century. Central to this process was the emergence of the concept of methods of language teaching. This research aims to canvass the views about foreign language teaching methods from the teachers. The perceptions of the teachers regarding the teaching methodologies used in L2 classrooms are highlighted in a broader vision. The use of different 2nd language teaching methodologies are discussed in detail with the addition of their results on the language learning abilities of the students. The L2 classrooms in the universities of Pakistan are also benefited from the standard teaching approaches, though the learning is not taking place as it should be. There is a battle going on in the field of foreign language. This research welcomes the perspective of teachers and investigates the needs and demands of teachers which can be followed to enhance the 2nd language learning process. The significance of the research is educational and opens the way for a brighter future of foreign language teachers who are putting efforts to give their students command on the grammatical competence of English.
There has always been a prejudice against the place of literature in ELT/ESL classes. It is either found to be beyond the proficiency levels of the students or is seen as a supporting type of activity but not as an integral part of the process of learning and teaching. Yet, if ELT teachers have a formula or a practicable model to employ literature as a good alternative for typical reading texts which are mostly lacking interest or substance, then it will perhaps be possible for them to realize the feasibility of literature with the various possibilities it may offer. I hope this study will be a guide especially to ELT/ESL teachers who want to teach language more effectively by developing learners’ literary competences while helping them internalize cultural, intellectual and linguistic dimensions of English Language Teaching.
In the era of globalization, both Information Technology (IT) and English play a vital role in communication. IT creates an environment where communication is possible across the borders within a second. On the other hand, English is the dominant global language which is used to spread messages around the world. As technology prevails in all areas of life to make the things easy, language teachers and learners can also depend much upon it. This paper brings into focus the use of IT in English language teaching and learning. The purpose of the work is also to identify how IT relates to English language learning at tertiary level. Besides, it indicates the possibilities of using IT beyond language classroom. For the study two questionnaires were designed to survey and it was conducted among language teachers and learners. Inspite of having some limitations to implement IT in language classroom, teachers and learners expressed their positive attitudes towards it.

Teaching English as a first language may not be that tough and challenging as the teaching of English as a second/foreign language. As a matter of fact, the pedagogues started taking much interest in this field, and the concepts like TESOL,CELTA, DELTA etc emerged in the area of teaching even in the native places like the UK. The present book, though has a main focus on the teaching aspects especially related to the context of Saudi Arabia, it is expected to offer a modest but useful contribution to the teaching/learning situations in the countries like Jordan, Qatar, Oman, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Bahrain, Kuwait, Libya,Malaysia, Pakistan,Bangladesh,India and many other countries where Arabic is not the L1 yet enjoys an important status. The book will also be helpful for the second language teachers/researchers in the places like China, Germany, France, Russia, Nigeria and similar states. The book is a nice combination of theoretical perspectives, popular approaches/methods, difficulties faced by the target learners, causes of such difficulties, linguistic analysis of those causes, and possible application of certain compatible strategies.
This book aims at investigating the ways in which deixis are identified in Standard English and Standard Arabic. It is an attempt to show the similarities and differences existing between them on the syntactic and semantic levels. They are realized by the same grammatical elements, like personal pronouns, demonstratives, some adverbs of place and time and tenses of the verb. The conclusions revealed that two are some points of similarity and difference within the above languages regarding person, number, gender and case distinctions. The comparison manifested a great similarity between the two compared languages and this result supports to a great extent the concept of universalism.
